Common signs of moisture problems in your Wake Forest crawl space

  • Rotten Wood
  • Strong, musty odors in the living area
  • Visible damage in the crawl space or living areas from mold and mildew
  • Noticeable condensation on the HVAC ducts/equipment
  • Condensation on insulation, pipes, framework
  • High humidity in living space
  • Pest and insect infestations
  • Floor damage, especially buckling and discolored hardwoods

Why Do I Need Crawl Space Waterproofing?

Ground saturation from heavy rains is a primary cause of water entry. During these rainstorms, the water absorbs into the soil, which causes pressure changes. Once the ground becomes saturated, the excess water pushed towards a point of low grade.

Crawl space foundations are the perfect place for this water to go. Having not been touched by the rain, the dry earth under your homes soaks up the moisture like a sponge. Even basements are susceptible once water absorbs into the porous concrete blocks that are your foundation walls.

North Carolina's hot and humid climate is extra hard on area homes. This heat and humidity enter the crawl space through foundation vents and becomes the perfect environment for breeding mold, mildew, and pest infestations.

Can I Prevent Water from Getting Back In?

While mold removal from a professional mold remediation company will clean up the problem, unless you stop the problem at its source, the mold will come back. In our experience, homes that are built on flat or negative grades will eventually undergo some type of moisture problem. Typically, homes that are built on this type of lot have French drains installed to eliminate water from pooling. The problem is, water will still migrate under the French drain and footing of interior crawl space.

The only solution is an Interior Drainage System, installed to collect and remove water from entering your crawl space.

Steps to Waterproof a Wake Forest Crawl Space

In order to solve your moisture problem, our waterproofing experts will:

  1. Dig a drainage trench around the interior crawl space perimeter
  2. Drill weep holes through the interior side of the base block
  3. Install specialized drainage piping in the trench
  4. Fill and cover the pipe and trench with 3/4" gravel
  5. Set up a gravity discharge to drain water, unless a sump pump is required

Your crawl space waterproofing is guaranteed with a Lifetime Warranty that can transfer to a new homeowner if you sell your home.

Once our team completes waterproofing your crawl space, you can be sure your home is permanently protected from moisture damage.
